    I created this thread in honor of all those who have gone before us and now walk with the ancestors and rest with the most high. You may honor a loved one or fallen soldier here. As many of you may know or not know today is marks 42 years since the assassination of our dear brothers Fred Hampton and Mark Clark of the Black Panther Party for Self Defense when the Chicago Police Department raided their headquarters at 4:30 am and murdered Fred Hampton in his sleep. He was 21 years old. We them him up in honor and memory as they will live forever that way we thank them for their dedication and steadfastness to the black cause. Ashe'

    In the religion we call Isese, not only is it customary to pour libation on the ground but small particles of food as well. In the odu ifa Ikadii we say:

    Kalankadii
    Agagaiga
    Ojo nla ni takiti leyin abuke
    A difa fun ile
    Ti seru akora barapetu
    A difa fun Orunmila
    Baba ji baba ri fomi oju sogbere ire

    Kalankadii
    Agagaiga
    Cast Ifa for ile
    Who was the first aid of Barapetu
    Ifa revelation to Orunmila
    When he woke up with thirst for good things

    A-je kolounje o to je
    Ile tire re e o
    A mu kolomi o to mu

    Ile, here is your portion
    you who eat before the owner of the food eats
    Ile, here is your portion
    You who drinks before the owner of the water drinks.

    Ase ase O ase!

    Yes it is. You'll find that most indigenous cultures offer food and drink to departed loved ones
